Another year, another impressive playoff touchdown run from Marshawn Lynch. This 27-yard touchdown wasn't up to the standard of his run against the Saints during the 2010 playoffs, but it was still impressive.

It started right at the line of scrimmage where Lynch used a jump cut to avoid a defensive lineman and break into the open. DeAngelo Hall was the next victim, as Lynch left him flailing with another nifty juke. Russell Wilson played the role of lead blocker, but Lynch still finished the play by running through a a pile of defenders and into the endzone. One day Tracy Porter and Hall will start a group called "Missed Tackles Anonymous" where they will talk about nightmares featuring Marshawn Lynch.

This 91-yard touchdown run by Jamaal Charles is about speed, speed and more speed.

At least five Saints had a shot at Charles, but none could get more than a hand on him as he went up the sideline. Charles broke a tackle at the line of scrimmage and as he got free, two Saints appeared to have an angle to run him down. Charles turned on the speed and simply outran their angles with Roman Harper able to only muster up a diving tackle attempt. From the time he broke into the open at roughly the 15-yard line, Charles took less than nine seconds to cover the remaining 76 yards. He's fast.
